. >> reporter: as "the washington post" wrote on election day 2005, the president's advisers last week opted to rearrange yesterday's return, to include a stop in the virginia capital in the hope of helping kilgore pull out a victory. it would offer a well-timed vindication of bush's clout. if kilgore wins, the president's political heart keeps beating. >> ladies and gentlemen, theth president of the united states, george w. bush. >> i appreciate you coming out here to the airport. we were just flying in from latin america. when you find a man who's got this kind of character, it makes sense to stop short of the destination and come in and say to the people in this state, put him in office and he'll be proud of the job he'll do for you. >> but in the end, kilgore was trounced. >> this showed that the president's policies in red states are drawing extreme concern. >> republicans eyeing next year's midterm elections are nervous. unlike 2002, when the president was a top draw for congressional candidates, now mr. bush's troubles have left republicans looking for distance. >> reporter: and repub

" and in the history books. >>> and training day, nerdland style. but first, yes, virginia, there is an election. >>> good morning. i'm melissa harris-perry. if i asked you what day is november 5th and you answered, duh, melissa, it's tuesday, instead of, enthusiastically offering the alternate correct answer, it's election day in america! well, you're in good company. because it's election day 2013, an odd number, which makes this an off year election. and well, to be honest, we tend not to get too excited about off year elections if voter turnout is any indication. in fact, it's not uncommon for voter turnout percentages in some off year state and local elections to be in the single digits. and that's among people who live in the jurisdictions that will be directly impacted by the outcomes of those elections. given the level of disinterest among people who actually have to live with the consequences of off year elections, finding a reason to care about the electoral politics of a state where you don't live is probably asking a lot. but here's why you might want to start paying attention. becau

[ applause ] >> that was at a north texas tea party event about two months before mitt romney lost the presidential election and of course it was long after president obama had produced his birth certificate showing that unlike either raphael cruz, sr., or junior, he was actually born in the united states. joining me now are msnbc political analyst steve schmidt, senior adviser on the mccain '08 campaign and joy reid, nbc contributor. this latest video about him wanting to send president obama as he puts it back to kenya was pulled out today. it's been around. they highlighted it. and then the senator put out a statement saying he doesn't -- his father doesn't s

in the open. the federal elections commission would have records of how much money super pacs and corporations spend on political campaigns. the big-money corporate interests, ooh, we don't want anything to do with this. hell no. democrats support the bill. they're in support of the bill. as a way to bring transparency to the political funding for republicans, this is all about keeping citizens united alive, and, of course, the money in the dark, in the closet, nobody knows where it's dom p coming from and we'll trash anybody we want. they want to keep the unlimited funds going to attack obama care. and wants them, of course, hidden out of the public eye. cruz is blocking the fcc chairman. this is all about republicans controlling the airwaves in the message. and senator cruz wants tom wheeler to give guarantees that nothing is going to change. and he is a senator with a power that will block this guy, and, of course, we're going to go into 2014 without the fcc, no deals are going to get approved. ironically, it's going hurt a lot of right wing companies, but, of course, ted cruz doesn't care.

are drawn, the pressures that those of us in elected office are under somehow preclude the possibility of that brand of leadership. well, i believe we have to find our way back there. now, more than ever. america needs public servants who are willing to place from solving ahead of politics. as the letter that president clinton held up indicates, the history of the crime bill shows. we are sent here to do what is right. sometimes, doing what is right is hard. it is not free. and yet, that is the measure of leadership. it is important for us who feel that responsibility to fight for a cause to recognize our cause is not advanced if we cannot also try to achieve compromise. the same way our founders sought it. as a vital part of our democracy. the very thing that makes our system of self-government possible. that is what tom foley believed. that is what he embodied. that is the legacy that shines rightly today. on the last day he presided as speaker, he described what it should feel like to serve the american people in this city. he spoke about coming to work in the morning and catching a
